Second Annual Giving Day a Great Success

The Beloit College community is generous and showed its heart and soul during its second annual Giving Day on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. In just 24 hours, the college raised over $65,000 from more than 450 supporters.

Not only did the gifts far surpass the original goal of $25,000, the event also raised $25,000 more than last year. Beloit is touched by the fantastic response received from supporters and is grateful to be backed by such a strong foundation of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. These gifts help make ‪#‎BeloitPossible for the next generation of Turtles, Bucs, and Beloiters.

The unconditional support, enthusiastically offered by our alumni, parents, and friends is a tribute to the character of our community, and the value that we all collectively recognize in the mission we seek to advance. We at Beloit are privileged to have a community so willing to invest in the future of our great institution, and our students. For this, we are grateful,” said Mark Wold’95, Senior Director of Alumni & Parent Relations and Annual Support.

Thank you to all who supported Beloit College’s second annual Giving Day. As College President Scott Bierman often says, it’s “turtles all the way down.”

Senior class perk: Pizza with the President

October 8, 2010 at 1:01 pm


pizza turtleOn Wednesday of last week, the first of many Pizza with the President events took place at the presidential residence on the corner of Chapin and College streets. More than 30 fourth-year students attended the event. All attendees received invitations a few weeks ago featuring a turtle in a chef’s hat, hoisting a pizza, and wearing colorful socks only a Bierman could love (the prez has a well documented love for gaudy socks).

Didn’t get an invitation to dine with President Bierman and wife Melody? Not to worry. Louise Denk, longtime secretary in the president’s office, says every senior will eventually get an invite, and every dietary preference can be accommodated. The science behind the invitation list? There isn’t one, Denk says. “Totally random. I go down the list and pull off a new name every few people until, through the course of the year, everyone’s been included.”

The next pizza party is coming up next month. Seniors, watch your mailboxes.

In case you were wondering, the most popular pizza at the meet and greets is onion and pineapple. "I'm not kidding," Denk says. "A student suggested it early last year and it has been a big hit."
